Beer Spillage Analysis

I am finally following up on my LONG-awaited and SUPER-detailed analysis of the big question that we all struggle with on a daily basis:  "What is the value of beer spilled at Wrigley Field during an average game?"  Potentially life-changing stuff here, I realize that, so I apologize for my delay in releasing my ...

Better Version of Yourself

So here's my quote for the day: "Embrace everyone and everything that helps you become a better version of yourself."  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that quote.
